Unborn Jesus

Made with Serif

"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a laud voice, 'Eloi, Eloi, lamasabachthani?' which means,' My God, My God, why have you deserted me?"  Mt 27:46-47

Psalm 22 by King David

My God, my God, why have you deserted me?

How far from saving me, the words I groan!

I call all day, my God, but you never answer,

all night long I call and cannot rest.

Yet, Holy One, you

who make your home in the praises of Israel,

in you our fathers put their trust,

they trusted and you rescued them:

they called to you for help and they were saved,

they never trusted you in vain.

Yet here am I, now more worm than man,

scorn of mankind, jest of the people,

all who see me jeer at me,

they toss their head and sneer,

"He relied on Yahweh, let Yahweh save him!

If Yahweh is his friend, let Him rescue him!"

Yet you drew me out of the womb;

you entrust me to my mother's breasts;

placed on your lap from my birth,

from my mother's womb you have been my God.

Do not stand aside: trouble is near,

I have no one to help me!

Then I shall proclaim your name to my brothers,

praise you in full assembly:

you who fear Yahweh, praise him!

Entire race of Jacob, glorify him!

Entire race of Israel, revere him!

For he has not despised

or disdained the poor man in his poverty,

has not hidden his face from him,

but has answered him when he called.

You are the theme of my praise in the Great Assembly,

I perform my vows in the presence of those who fear him.

The poor will receive as much as they want to eat.

Those who seek Yahweh will praise him.

Long life to their hearts!

The whole earth, from end to end, will remember and come

back to Yahweh;

all the families of nations will bow down before him.

For Yahweh reigns, the ruler of nations!

Before him all the prosperous of the earth will bow down,

before him will bow all who go down to the dust.

And my soul will live for him, my children will serve him;

men will proclaim the Lord to generations still to come,

his righteousness to people yet unborn....

...All this he has done.
